Most Helpful Positive Review Beautiful Mystery
I received a new bottle of Beautiful Eau de Parfum recently and after using it as my signature scent for over 30 years, found it to be sadly different. While its lasting power has always been a remarkably dreamy strength, I've found this newer batch to fade before lunch. For over 30 years, I could count on at least one compliment a day while moving about the World, Now, I rather miss being asked what lovely scent I'm wearing. I am certain something in the formula has changed and it's not an improvement. Since I have not changed medications, diet or fitness regime, I assumed that I somehow received an "off" batch. I purchased at another location, only to find that bottle a disappointment as well. Scent being such a strong psychological imprint, I mustn't fail to mention that my husband and children are also negatively impacted by my hugs being remiss of the scent that has always been "me".
PLEASE bring back the dependable, lovely, lasting and identity supporting Beautiful that has seen me through so much of my womanhood!
Most Helpful Critical Review Signature scent has been changed
I've been using Beautiful since the late 80's... absolutely loved it! It was my go-to scent, one that everyone who knew me recognized and loved. The scent kept me going whenever I'd feel down especially after I was diagnosed with AIH. But this past month I (and many others) noticed the scent was waaaay off... too strong and spicy and made it hard for me to breathe. Luckily, the overpowering scent wore off after an hour (unlike the original scent which would last until it was washed off). I purchased 3 different bottles of Beautiful (parfum and eau de toilet) from local department stores and finally ordered from EL's website hoping the others were just a bad batch. The light, flowery signature scent is gone and it's replacement smells cheap and is awful! I am beyond disappointed!

I love White Linen, but this may be my new favorite fragrance!

Beautiful lotion has a very pleasant smell. Skin feels like silk but not greasy. I dont normally spend this much on lotion, however, it works wonders to make you feel beautiful. The slim pink bottle is very attractive. My only complaint is the pump. It seems like it should be a bit higher to dispense the lotion better. Otherwise, it's worth the money.
True to it's name sake. The scent is beautiful!

I have been wearing this perfume for 20 years. I buy one every other year or so. I recently bought the 3.4 oz and the scent was off. I am familiar with what it should smell like and it was just wrong. I even set it aside and tried it again a couple of times just to make sure I didn't imagine it or that I wasn't influenced by something else. Sadly, no. I returned it. I'll try it again in the store to see if maybe I got a bad bottle. I leave this review just in case someone else has that same thing, you'll know you're not crazy.

This perfume does not compare to Beautiful Sheer. I wish they would bring back beautiful sheer. It was light and fresh. That was the only perfume I use to buy from Estée Lauder.
Mammy from Princeton Ky
Beautiful is the most amazing scent I have ever smelled, and the scent is long-lasting throughout the day. This is the only perfume scent that I will ever wear. Who would have ever thought that a scent would make you feel beautiful? I have C.O.P.D and the added bonus is Beautiful does not interfere with my breathing.

I bought this thinking that it would smell good. But Nope. It smells awful. I would not recommend. So I don't like returning stuff.i think i'm just gonna give it to my mother hopefully she likes it.
My favorite perfume

The price for this product has always been "pricey", however, the increase was just too much. I will search elsewhere. I noticed you have increased the prices of quite a number of products above reason.

Smells good. Keep the skin soft and moisture. I like the smell.
Vicky from Monticello, Il.
I received my perfume, and love it, but was disappointed that I did not receive my three free items.
Shannon from Paso Robles CA
In my opinion, this is the best perfume. I've worn this particular fragrance for many years as it is light and gains many complements. Other perfumes tend to lead to a headache. This does not. Absolutely beautiful! Highly recommended.

I did not like the aroma, it is very expensive for what you receive
Sharon from Georgia
This is my favorite perfume of all time. My mother always bought it for me and she wore it as well. She recently passed away and I thought I would treat myself. The memories that it brings back are just as it says beautiful. I was very sad that it took so long to get.
Other than the huge delay of the online order it will still be my favorite.
I bought this product for my mom. She loves it.
Naida from Florida
This was a gift for my mom. She loves it. I would definitely buy it again.
